I spotted a single spotless crake are the marshy end of the pond at about 11am this morning, amongst reeds at inflow from castle playground. Good views and
moderate photos which I am yet to processes. I forget how small they are!
To conclude my twitching tour of the region this morning I went to Red Hill Restaurant to look for the tufted honeyeater. However it was very windy, very cold,
and the only bird I saw was a lone magpie which appeared to be having second thoughts about the wisdom of being there… I'll probably take a second look this weekend now that I finally have a chance this year to do some bird watching around Canberra region.
